What is Cato ILMM

Cato's Intelligent Last-Mile Monitoring (ILMM) service, is a global, last-mile monitoring and management service designed for today’s enterprise.

Cato has a dedicated Network Operation Center (NOC) team that is responsible for the ILMM service and resolving any last mile issues with Internet Service Providers (ISPs) around the world. The ILMM monitors Sockets and provides:

  • Detecting link outages or degradations in real-time

  • Proactively opening tickets with the ISP and follow-up until the link service is restored

  • A closed feedback loop for customers with the NOC team

ILMM customers sign a Letter of Authorization (LOA) with the ISP, which gives Cato the legal authority to open tickets with the ISP on behalf of the customer. When the last-mile issue is resolved, Cato automatically notifies the customer with details of the resolution. Communication with the contacts for each site is in English.
